Arsenal could be set to make a stunning double raid on Paris Saint Germain to sign star duo Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi, according to the Metro.
Reports on Tuesday morning claimed that Arsenal are ready to drop their chase of Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema in favour of Cavani.
However, a new report from Eurosport claims that the Ligue 1 champions have offered up Cavani’ teammate Lavezzi to the Gunners, as well as to Tottenham and West Ham, following Angel Di Maria’s signing from Manchester United.
The 30-year-old is believed to be available for around £10m, and like Cavani, is believed to have grown frustrated at the lack of regular first team action at the Parc des Princes.
Arsenal are known to be in the hunt for a new striker, and while Lavezzi is predominantly a winger, he has played in a central striking role in the past, and could provide Arsene Wenger with another option in attack.
